Convenant University Promotes Nigeria’s Global Relevance With N1Billion by TheVictorious(m): 6:26pm On Apr 11, 2017
The Vice-Chancellor of the Covenant University, Prof. Aderemi Atayero, on Tuesday said that the University’s Board had instituted an endowment fund of N1billion to promote its newly-introduced glocalisation programme.

Atayero told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that glocalisation was a concept coined by the institution as part of its vision of becoming one of the top ten universities in the world.

“The Board of Covenant University recently endowed N1 billion to any project from either Faculty or Students of the University that meets the criteria of glocalisation.

“The concept of glocalisation came about after we have looked at our immediate environment, looked at the present problems in Nigeria, Sub-Saharan Africa and Africa in general.

“We then started thinking of how we can provide solutions to these problems, through scientific approach, to proffering solutions to these problems, and by so doing getting global relevance.

“With glocalisation, we would be able to solve our local problems, through publishing of our results, disseminating knew knowledge created, and this way we get global relevance,’’ he said.

According to him, it is imperative to promote research with application in solving problems of poverty, moral decadence and inferiority complex.

He said that the programme was one of the missions of the Living Faith Church to eradicate poverty, liberate souls, moral decadence, build skills and reposition people spiritually, economically and socially.

Good stuff from CU. I know the university also set aside another $10 million dollars to recruit international staff. I hope people understand that this cash is coming from the living faith church and not covenant university. The living faith church is really spending a lot of cash on CU this year.
The church has also budgeted another 1.6 billion for CU this year alone and that is why I laugh when someone says the church is making profit from CU.

In 2013 the church built a senate building worth 353 million naira and then 2016 the research center should be around 600 million naira but the most important thing is what they are doing now-funding research to top notch and recruiting best staff. Hopefully we would rank top five in Africa(times) by the end of this year. Thank u TheVictorious for tagging me.

By the way globalisation means solving a local problem with a global resonance.

You say na una coin am? Based on logistics na lie. grin

Glocalization ...The term first appeared in a late 1980s publication of the
Harvard Business Review. At a 1997 conference on "Globalization and Indigenous Culture", sociologist Roland Robertson stated that glocalization "means the simultaneity – the co-presence – of both universalizing and particularizing tendencies."

Wow!

What a nice ingenious concept, 'glocalisation'

I hope one day the word would be added to English dictionary and be acceptable worldwide.

And to be among top ten universities in the world is not unachievable.

Top ten university in the world?

All the best to them, but that's a pipe dream for now. Perhaps, aim for top 1,000 to begin.

According to the Center for World University Rankings publication, no Nigerian university is in the top 1,000.
